Dr. Gillani completed her PhD in Econometrics from Boston University in 1994. Her career has evolved from econometrics, to health economics, to HIV/AIDS epidemiology, to her current focus on health care informatics, quality improvement, and public health. She has been working with the Providence-Boston Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) since 2003, where her focus has been on healthcare analytics related to infectious diseases, specially HIV, TB, and Viral hepatitis in national and international settings. Since early 2019, she has been leading an HIV Awareness and Prevention project in Pakistan in response to a recent HIV outbreak in the country. Her team is working with healthcare providers and higher education institutions in Pakistan to help increase awareness about HIV disease and create effective and culturally appropriate prevention strategies to control future transmissions.
